OPTION-vf Valved Female Urinary Catheter
Company : Opticon Medical
UMDC Code : 451985
The key advantages of the OPTION-vf catheter are derived from the main concept of using the bodys own bladder to store urine rather than a collection bag. When the bladder needs to be drained, the patient or caregiver merely activates a specially designed and patented valve that permits convenient draining in a manner very similar to normal voiding. Messy, cumbersome, and costly external tubing and urine collection bags are not necessary with the Practica device as compared to the Foley catheter system. A patented integral drainage valve allows for controlled voiding and replaces continuous drainage with normal bladder cycling. A proprietary 5-10cc teardrop shaped balloon helps prevent leakage around the catheter shaft by blocking urine flow at the bladder neck.
